When I had bought Cursed's new CD, Goodfellow had a package deal going where for about 20 bucks you got the new Cursed CD, a Cursed poster, some stickers, and the new Purity's Failure EP. I figured what the hell, might as well pick this up too. It was a great decision. Extensions is a followup to their Goodfellow debut Destruction, which I'll have to pick up sooner or later. This is definitely a band that I can add to the small but growing list of metalcore bands I like.
When I fail the whole world hears me - I'm fucking legendary / A failure so pure becomes legendary / No one stop me - legendary / Forget the sun, we're walking away.The lyrics have a lot of words that seem to come up frequently, such as pure/purity and failure (I suppose that's a bit of motif since it's the band's name and all), and I've seen quite a few references to the sun.
My favorite songs are "Unwelcoming Committee," "Sore Losers" and "Funeral Song," but the entire CD is very good. The two shortcomings of the CD is the lyrical content not being as good as the actual music, and the song "Legendary," although having the best lyrics of the CD in my opinion, is too slow and sort of ruins the flow of the CD. Definitely pick this up if you have the money.
